  • Zion National Park is a natural wonderland awaiting your discovery today. If you're up for a scenic drive, the 9.7 km (6 miles) drive is a great way to see the park's highlights. You'll be treated to views of the towering red rock formations, sweeping vistas, and the serene Virgin River that meanders through the canyon. However, the best way to truly experience Zion National Park is by foot. The park is home to a vast network of hiking trails ranging from easy strolls to challenging treks, each offering unique perspectives and scenery.

  • The drive from Springdale (Zion National Park) to Bryce Canyon National Park is a scenic two-hour journey through the unique landscape of southern Utah. As you wind through the red rock canyons and plateaus, you'll pass through quaint towns and awe-inspiring vistas. On arrival at Bryce Canyon, you'll be greeted with one of the most breathtaking natural wonders in the world. The park's famous hoodoos, which are towering spires of rock formed by erosion.

  • A great way to start your day in Bryce Canyon National Park is by driving to the various overlooks and taking in the panoramic views of the park's unique hoodoos and amphitheatres. Explore some of the park's trails on foot, ranging from easy to more challenging hikes. We can highly recommend a guided tour of the park, which offers a more in-depth insight into the park's geology, history, and wildlife.

  • Depart Bryce Canyon National Park this morning and drive three hours south to the arid desert around Page, Arizona. Along the way, you can enjoy the scenic drive through Utah's rugged landscapes. This afternoon, you may wish to take a boat trip on nearby Lake Powell, a vast reservoir on the Colorado River which straddles the state border between Utah and Arizona.

    Stay at Hyatt Place Page Lake Powell   
  • This morning we can highly recommend a visit to the famous Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, and Glen Canyon Dam. In the afternoon, continue your journey east and make the two-hour drive from Page to Monument Valley. Here you have the afternoon free to explore this dramatic copper landscape, an iconic panorama synonymous with the American Wild West. The highlight of the area is the ancient Ancestral Puebloan cliff dwellings and long-abandoned adobe and stone houses, which are surrounded by vertiginous cliffs.

  • Take a native Navajo-led guided tour through the valley this morning. The Navajo Nation have lived in the region for hundreds of years and your guide will explain the history, geology, flora and fauna of Monument Valley from a Navajo perspective. This afternoon, drive three and a half hours west to the Grand Canyon. There are many breathtakingly beautiful spots to stop for views of the Colorado River en route. The rest of the day is free for you to take in the amazing views from the many viewpoints along the canyon's edge.

  • Spend a full day at leisure exploring the Grand Canyon National Park. Don't miss an exhilarating helicopter trip over the canyon for an incredible bird's eye perspective of this natural wonder. Alternatively, you may wish to take a hike down into the valley. It's definitely worth gazing out over the canyon at sunrise or sunset when the park's at its most beautiful.

  • Depart the Grand Canyon and drive for two hours through the lush forests to the red rock region of Sedona. You could stop en route in the town of Flagstaff, which has several museums detailing the lives of the region's indigenous cultures and early settlers. When you arrive in Sedona, take a leisurely stroll along the downtown area, browsing in the many art galleries, shops, and restaurants.
